A return from the beyond...

Well, long time...no see from me.  I am one of the worst bloggers, but no guilt here.  I try, and that's all any of us can do.
So how is everyone?  Since the last time we chatted, we have restarted school, been to DisneyWorld for a wonderful week, changed jobs to working in a Surgical/Trauma/Burn ICU at one of the best hospitals in the country (Love this!), celebrated Christmas, New Years, Easter, and all of those other holidays throughout the year.
The summer has started, Father's Day and my son's birthday is now past...and school starts for the kids in less than 2 months.  The hubs and I are officially on a staycation.  I'm off for about another week.  Then in July I'm off of work for another 7 days.  We think a trip to Branson is in the books for them. We'll see.  The next couple of weeks are kind of busy though...a surprise party for the brother-in-laws 40th and my youngest sister is getting remarried.
Stitching related...I had lost my mojo for quite a long time, but it has came back in the last 6 months or so.  I'm trying to stitch on the UFO's that had accumulated for a long while, so now I'm working on those.  I've told myself that I can't really start anything new until I finish at least something old.  So I'm working pretty diligently on that.  I have been working on some ornaments too though.  I'll take a couple pictures of what I'm working on currently, soon.  Right now, I'm working on SB Earth Gatherer, LHN Heart of America, LHN Liberty among others.
These are some of the pictures from exchanges that I've made in the last several months.

For those of you who are still lurking in my blog world...God knows, you should have given up on me by now...but I do appreciate you.
Do any of you know the designer for this picture (and name of the chart)? I have fallen in LOVE with this picture, and would love to try to make some of these.  I think it's probably Prairie Schooler, but just now sure.

I will attempt to post again in a couple of days. Have a wonderful week!

Edited to add: the glove is from the Prairie Schooler's Garden Gloves book.  Such a cute idea!!!
